Luxury Holidays in South Madagascar

There is no better way to explore every nook and cranny of this fascinating country than by car, and your private driver and guide will ensure your journey south is a memorable one.

Isabel and Ra are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • There's a lot more to Madagascar than the animated film. Having said that, we wouldn't want to dissuade you from watching it in preparation for your trip…
  • The sheer beauty of Isalo National Park, the lemurs of Ranomafana, and the variety of life and landscapes you'll encounter along the way make the south a thrilling destination

Our guide to holidays in The South

Working your way from Tana down to Tuleur in the southwest, discover a puzzle of landscapes, vegetation and ethnic groups, from the rice producing terraced highlands and the tropical forest of Ranomafana to the mountains of the Tsaranoro Valley and the semi desert canyons of Isalo National Park.

Along the way, visit National Parks rich in endemic flora and fauna, encounter countless species of lemur and other fantastical creatures, discover local cultural traditions and be welcomed by the incredible hospitality of remote villages which have yet to embrace the 21st century. Spend half a day relaxing on one of the country's most scenic train journeys or go horse riding in the Isalo National Park, Madagascar's equivalent of the Rockies.

With lovely new accommodation options springing up all the time, you can stay in comfortable hotels each night making this a great first foray into Madagascar. After travelling the length of the country, or half of it at least, relax on one of the many pristine beaches scattered along the coast.


Original Highlight

The drives might be long and bumpy but boy do you get a feel for Madagascar as you pass children herding zebu cattle, little villages, tombs and, of course, some unbelievable scenery.
